# How do you identify the variable, constant, and coefficient of the expression: –10k + 15?

May 25, 2017

Variable = k, Constant = 15, Coefficient = -10

#### Explanation:

Consider the general form of the linear expression $m x + c$

Where the variable is $x$, the coefficient of x is $m$ and the constant term is $c$

In this example: $- 10 k + 15 \to x = k , c = 15 , m = - 10$

Hence: Variable = k, Constant = 15, Coefficient = -10
